Earth Day Kudos to Better Buildings Challenge Multifamily Partners

As we celebrate Earth Day, we recognize the ingenuity and commitment of multifamily partners working to save energy and improve building performance across their multifamily housing portfolios. Their leadership helps both owners and residents cut costs, increases housing affordability, contributes to the health and safety of residents, and provides a valuable model to housing peers.

In the past year, 13 partners have posted Implementation Models or Showcase Projects in the Better Buildings Solutions Center and each one represents a real-world case solution to barriers in the marketplace for energy efficiency upgrades.
